Respighi’s imaginative orchestrations of lute music and Bloch’s challenge to his skeptical students bookend a program of works influenced by traditions of an earlier style of music. In between, Jennifer Corning Lucio, Fort Worth Symphony’s principal oboe, performs Vaughn Williams’ pastoral oboe concerto and the baroque concerto grosso form gets a jazz-inflected rethinking by Errolyn Wallen, “the renaissance woman of contemporary British music.”

Kelly Kuo, conductor

Jennifer Corning Lucio, Oboe

RESPIGHI  Ancient Airs and Dances Suite No. 3


WALLEN  Concerto Grosso

BLOCH  Concerto Grosso No. 1
